The AP is reporting that “Mitt Romney recently discussed the possibility of linking financial aid to students’ perspective career choices.”
“I like the idea of linking the level of support that we’re able to provide to young people going to college to the contributions they’re going to make to our society.”
It sounds like a good idea on the surface- but really opens up a whole new set of questions like:
Who is going to decide which career choices are worthy of funding?
Does a person with a degree in Business contribute more to society than a person with an Art degree?
And what about the many kids who enter college with Undecided as their major?
